43rd Annual Geranium Heritage House Tour: Sydenham Saunter

This year marks our 43rd annual Geranium Heritage House Tour!
Come explore St. George - Grosvenor, one of Old North's most charming historic neighbourhoods where you will learn about its heritage architecture and the notable Londoners who were its early residents. With its gracious homes and stately trees, you'll find our Sydenham Saunter through this lovely neighbourhood a treat for the eyes and the soul! This area is currently being studied by the City as London's next possible Heritage Conservation District and your ticket includes guided interior tours of nine of these heritage homes.
Ticket price also includes refreshments and an informative keepsake guidebook featuring a map of this self-paced walk (approximately 2.5 hours). The Tour starts at Victoria Carter London Dance Centre, 160 Sydenham Street where you'll pick up your guidebook. Potted red geraniums donated by Parkway Gardens mark the homes open for interior visits - hence the name of our tour! Our 80+ volunteers will welcome you with warm smiles and a treasure trove of knowledge.
Our pop-up shop will have heritage publications available for purchase including Tour guidebooks from previous years so visitors can explore our city’s many other historic neighbourhoods on their own. Proceeds from this event - our signature fundraiser - go towards supporting our London Heritage Scholarship, homeowner restoration grants, and heritage advocacy initiatives.
